Regular ankle strengthening exercises are recommended to reduce the rick of getting an ankle sprain or reinjuring an ankle. Ligaments that are injured are the anterior talofibular ligament, which is the most common ligament to be injured, posterior talofibular ligament this ligament is rarely injured and also the calcaneofibular ligament. Most ankle sprains include the anterior talofibular ligament and the calcaneofibular ligament. With any ankle sprain if there is any worry about dislocation or fracture the person should be immobilized and needs to be seen. When someone sprains an ankle there will be swelling, bruising and tenderness and the pain will be at the lateral part of the ankle and sometimes at the medial part.

(1 point) The ankle articulation consists of three bones that are the tibia, fibula and the talus. A sprain is an injury that involves the tearing or stretching of a ligament or a joint capsule.
1. Understand anatomy and physiology in relation to moving and positioning individuals 1.1 Outline the anatomy and physiology of the human body in relation to the importance of correct moving and positioning of individuals: Muscles: - It is important to move an individual’s limbs safely, avoiding pushing or pulling roughly, as this may cause tendons and muscles to contract too strongly, overstretching or tearing them and causing strains. Joints: - Sprains may also occur in the ligaments, when a joint is forced either out of its normal movement range. There are three different types of joint: - Fixed joints, which have no movement (e.g. in the skull) - Cartilaginous joints, which have small amounts of movement (e.g.
This fracture was named after an Irish surgeon Abraham Colles. A butterfly fracture is where the middle is compromised by two flaws that are shaped into a triangle.
